Women in Christ (LWML)

Summer schedules become hectic, but remember we are having our annual (well, almost) craft day where you can learn or try a new craft. Supplies are provided in your fee. Please register ahead of time to attend. Need some volunteers to bring breakfast type food as well. Let Lea Bailey know if you can bring a food item.

 

July brings us to electing new officers. The nominating committee (Gale Kerstens, Maria Freitag and Claudia Skocpol) is working on that. If you’re interested, volunteer. Or, if one of them contacts you, prayerfully consider being an officer for this group. Elections will be held at the July meeting scheduled for July 30th at 5:30 p.m. at the Thomason’s pool. More details next month on that event.

 

Mother’s Day Flower Sale

 

Women in Christ’s flower sales included potted plants this year. We grossed over $800 in sales. Yea God!! The profit will go to Arlington Life Shelter. Thank you to all the ladies who helped Saturday arranging flowers, potting plants, setting up, and selling.

 


 

Women in Christ Craft Day

Mark June 24th, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on your calendar. Come try some new craft projects as you delve into making them with guidance. Friends are welcome to come with you.

Starts with light breakfast. Then we’ll begin working on a beach scene miniature garden (will be making 3 or 4 items for garden plus assembling it) and a cross wall hanging. Should be finished by 1:30 p.m. or earlier though that’s hard to know for sure.

Reservations are needed so that we can have enough supplies on hand for all participants. Sign up in plaza or via email to lbailey695@gmail.com. Payment due when you register, or shortly thereafter. Cost is $25.00 to attend; make checks payable to LWML. All supplies furnished. Checks will be held till June 15th. Profits are designated for the “church update fund.”

Aren’t so crafty?? Can’t attend this day? We’re offering a “make it for you service” for up to 6 people at an additional cost of $15. If interested in this, please let us know. Your projects will be ready for pickup on June 25th or per arrangements made.

Are you receiving the LWML Mustard Seed Devotions by email? If not, sign up for this at http://www.lwml.org/mustard-seed-devotions It’s a short meaningful devotion that’ll break up reading all those emails.

Serving God,

Women’s Retreat

Save the Date: November 3rd - 5th, 2017

 

Last year we had a great retreat at Camp Hoblitzelle!  Unfortunately, we were not able to reserve the dates or buildings that we wanted for this year.  So we are on the move again!  Thank you Lord for providing a new location only a little further down the road!  We will be meeting at Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center! Here is the link to their website if you would like to check it out, http://lakeviewcamp.net/  The Leadership team will begin meeting in June as we start the planning process for this year.   If you would like to be part of the team or have a retreat idea or theme, please speak with Kathryn Lowrey (817-709-8379).
